Gotham Greens Vegan Caesar Dressing & Dip

I love this vegan Caesar dressing from Gotham greens. It’s easily the best vegan caesar dressing we’ve ever tasted. It tastes like it actually has parmesan cheese in it! It’s perfectly creamy and peppery and acidic. I would use this as a salad dressing, sandwich spread, dip, drizzle for grilled veggies. It would be good on anything!

Ken’s Creamy French Steak House Dressing

Ken’s makes the best French dressing for vegans. It’s so tangy and tart, while maintaining a little bit of sweetness. If you’re a French dressing fan, buy this! It doesn’t matter if you eat dairy and honey or not. Also, if you’ve never had French dressing, try it. It’s surprisingly good on a salad.

Girard’s Olde Venice Italian Vinaigrette

Girard’s makes incredible salad dressings (because they use MSG!) and one of the best Italian dressings you can buy at the grocery store. This one is dairy free and packed with salty, umami, tangy goodness. Make an Italian chopped salad or sub sandwich with vegan meat, plant based cheese, and a splash of this plant based salad dressing, and it will still be delicious and flavorful.

Best Greek

Christo’s Yasou Greek Salad Dressing

Christo’s Yasou makes one of our favorite Greek salad dressings and it just happens to be vegan! The brand calls itself the “original Greek salad dressing.” I have no clue if that’s true, but I do know that this is one of the best plant based salad dressings you can buy. It’s oily, vinegary, and herby. Forget the feta and make a vegan Greek salad with this!
